George Will Going to Fox News

Say goodbye to George Stephanopolous, and hello to Bret Baier. George Will, called the “most powerful journalist in America” by The Wall Street Journal, is heading to Fox News after three decades at ABC, Fox News confirmed on Tuesday. Will has been a panelist on This Week since the show premiered in the early 1980s, but the show’s taping in New York the majority of the time had become too much of a strain for Will, who lives in Washington. He also writes a syndicated column that appears in 475 newspapers, and once served as a contributing editor to Newsweek magazine. He has also written several books.
